Get The Basics Right, The Fun Stuff Will Follow

We have arrived at the end of an energetically transformative week, which if you’ve taken advantage of, you could be feeling grounded in the present moment, poised for whatever’s next but neither relying on its arrival nor doubting that it will come. This place, here, in the now, is a wonderful environment filled with the power of infinite potential but it is not a place to wait… it’s a place to nurture that power by focusing on what’s important and immediate. Get the basics right, the fun stuff will follow.

So what are the basics?

Last Saturday’s oracle whose potency is evident right up until the end of the day, was about communicating your needs, and given the mildly antagonistic nature of last night’s super new moon, this is a perfect time for you to attend to those needs regardless of whether help is available. There is so much you can achieve between now and whenever the universe delivers your gift in whatever form it arrives.

The basics include first and foremost your most precious possessions: your body, mind and spirit. Attend to your personal care needs first, spend some time in nature listening to the birdsong and remembering how to breathe deeply, right down into the bottom of your lungs, exhaling the residue of what no longer serves you. Take time to appreciate the flowers… I’m happily playing in my garden doing just that after my help arrived early in the week in the form of a beautiful friend who worked like a machine helping me tame the neglect and half rebuild Eden… thank you Karen!

The basics include spending time with family: eat together, play together, put down your phones and devices and relearn how to talk to each other… laugh together.

Today is all that matters, leave tomorrow to take care of itself (I’ll be back with the Intuitive Chalice Oracle then).

Principles 2 & 6

Saturday Oracle – Wearing Shadow Shackles

It’s all in the mind.

As you wander, almost furiously into this week, searching for an escape from the restrictions imposed upon you by your own confusion, there’s a danger of becoming further enmeshed in the internal drama.

When Principle 5: I AM Liberated meets the inky brow chakra then you are wearing shadow shackles that have no real substance except in your imagination which has cornered you with your own fear.

This is a powerful week, combining a new moon and the Chinese New Year and you are putting yourself under immense pressure to do something, anything in fact, but the urgency is an illusion and you would do well to ride out the storm happening inside your head and wait for new information to arrive.

Don’t be rushed into taking premature action that you might regret later and moreover, if you are waiting for someone else to act first then give them more time… you have no idea what they are dealing with and you know they will come through for you in the end.

Principle 5 is grounded in the material and the physical things that appear to keep us trapped, but this is a precarious transition where you are quite likely to throw the baby out with the bath water in an effort to free yourself from what was actually nothing more than your faulty perception.

Time out folks, rest, relax… take a vacation if it’s possible but most of all go within and contemplate what constitutes true freedom before you sell off the family silver or walk away from your hard won career.

Ask for help from someone you trust who isn’t invested in the outcome to help you get clarity… and give the rest to God. He’s got a handle on the whole theatrical set up and will dispatch angels to show you the way the minute you stop playing the impending disaster movie inside your visual cortex and surrender… you’re ok, it’s all in the mind.

More next week… x

 

Saturday Oracle – The Most Amazing Gift

The oracle selection this week surprised me because I didn’t see it coming or its relevance in my current experience but I was willing to explore its message to see where it was leading…

The combination of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full with the blood red of the base or root chakra is a deliberate health warning.

Being as I personally have just, a couple of weeks ago, come out of the other side of some sticky virus or other and many of my friends, family, colleagues and clients have survived the same, when this combo arrived I was at first concerned that we were all in for a bout of something else until I heard the words “prevention is better than cure” infiltrate the back of my mind…

We have entered into the final week before Christmas and of course that means we are in full on mental mode: “must do this, must get that, must go there, forgot that, what about so and so?” In amongst all that mind clutter you seem to be forgetting something vital…. YOU!

When the base chakra shows up for healing its time to get grounded, eat well, ┬áregulate your sleep patterns, hydrate and exercise… yes I said exercise (I don’t mean how much Christmas shopping you can carry in one trip). Fresh air, long walk, gentle yoga, etc should do the trick. Treat yourself to a fabulous bubble bath and some pamper time followed by a meditation about all the things your already grateful for and watch Christmas transform into something extra special.

With all the parties going on this time of year, try not to put your body under too much strain by drowning it with toxins and late nights… you don’t need to wait until New Year to make healthy choices, today is a good day to cherish the most amazing gift you could ever be given: good health.

Have a good week and take care of you…

More on Christmas Eve… x
